American gun murder rate is obscene

Shannon Watts

“Americans are 20 times more likely to be murdered with a gun than people in other developed countries,” this from Shannon Watts on MSNBC following the San Bernardino gun slaughter. She is the founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, a part of Everytown for Gun Safety. Watts, like many of the rest of us have run out of adjectives to describe the gun carnage going on in the United States that has been fostered by the National Rifle Assn. and a group of greedy cowards in Congress. There is blood on their hands that will never be washed off.

“Everytown for Gun Safety research shows us that In states that require background checks, there are 52% fewer mass shootings, 46% fewer women shot to death by intimate partners, and 48% fewer law enforcement officers killed with handguns,” is her proof that common sense gun laws do work. In the San Bernrdino case a straw purchaser bought the guns for the couple who killed fourteen, a law that Pres. Obama has been trying to pass.

Shannon Watts says the tide is turning and in her position I trust her judgment and urge all gun control advocates to let it be known how you feel.
